Tuesday night recap

Nothing exciting to report, made my husband dinner and watched gilmore girls with him. He kept asking all kinds of questions, since he has only really watch the show a few times.

I am hoping to order the shuffle tomorrow, but i'm feeling a bit guilty as it is my husband's bonus and I am having a hard time convincing him to buy something for himself, like the playstation 2 that he has said he wanted.

Couch to 5k week 3 (30 minutes plus 5 warmup)
Biggest Loser strength and conditioning (20 minutes plus 15 minute warm up and cool down)

kiki runs for 3 minutes

Week 3 of couch to 5k started today.

Week 3
5 minute brisk walking
1.5 minutes jogging
1.5 minutes walking
3 minutes jogging
3 minutes walking

It was cold out this morning, but not as cold as last week. It was hard to motivate myself this morning, as I knew it was a new week and a harder routine. The first 3 minute set of jogging I thought I would have to stop and give up. ..i was out of breath, my lungs hurt (perhaps from the cold) and my calves hurt. (YES Mom i did stretch). I was able to pull through.
The 90 second run/walk went by in no time. The second run I really knew I just had to push myself through, and I did it. I only stopped for about 5 seconds because I had to maneuver around ice. I ended up going farther this time, I had planned one route , but there were too many dogwalkers and kids waiting for the bus , so I modified for another route. I ended up finishing the last 3 minute walk and was still a few minutes away from my house so I was actually out there about 28-30 minutes. This is going to be a hard week.

My new songs for the 3 minute runs/walk
Milkshake - Kelis
Imagine-John Lennon
Its hard out their for a pimp- From hustle and flow
Harder to breathe-Maroon 5.

I had half a bagel with light cream cheese this morning , yum .

I found out I have to cover phones for 5.5 hours today, ugh.
